I am seriously on reserves in my house. The fridge is EMPTY. I don’t even have a bag of spinach or baby carrots, 2 things I’m rarely without.
Thankfully my pantry is normally pretty stocked and that includes my freezer. I pulled out a baked ham for dinner the other night and have frozen bags of peas and broccoli for backups.
My family loves ham. I know it’s not the least process meat choice out there but it’s lean, quick, easy and a total crowd pleaser. We make one about 1-2 times a month and love the leftovers for quick lunches.
The boys just eat it cubed, but yesterday I decided to have a little fun. Using just a few ingredientsâ€¦
I made a yummy ham salad that tasted totally indulgent, but it’s super light!
Here’s what I did…
- 1/4 cup frozen peas
- 2 oz cooked ham cut into small cubes
- 2 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb
- 1 tsp Whole Grain Mustard (5g)
- Dried Parsley for Sprinkling
Put the frozen peas in a cup with some hot tap water while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. They will defrost in moments and be ready to eat.
Put all the ingredients in a small bowl. (note: I added my second wedge of cheese after I took the photo)
This wold be great in a pita, on a lettuce wrap, or even an english muffin, but alas, I had none of those things. All I could find was an aging cucumber leftover from Thanksgiving. Yeah, Thanksgiving. It was on it’s last legs so I sliced what I could of it up and used it to serve my fun lunch.
The sprinkle of parsley brought it all together. :) In my opinion, pretty food is satisfying food.
